Metric is ok but if you ever need to repair anything in the real world, you're going to need a standard and metric tool set.

Then there is the question of how many sizes should there be? A 14mm wrench is great for a rusty 9/16 bolt and a 1/2 is great for a rusty 14mm bolt.

I see two points worth touching on the watermelons. Mathematicians don't understand watermelons and I forget my second point. Something distracted me.

Are you talking about that old imperial measures, used by a single country in the world? :smileytongue:

You talk about regularity, when it is obvious that base ten number system is a redundantly complex antiquated basis for any serious analytical purposes?

There are 10 types of people in this world, the people that use binary and the computationally handicapped.

ETA There are at least two countries where imperial measures rule, even if one of them can't even get the definition of a pint right!

Right, the world needs more Britneys and Mileys . . .

ETA Perhaps to emphasise the sarcasm I should have inserted "civilised" into that sentence.

ETA Or perhaps replaced "world" with "UK".

ETA At least we have managed to get you to accept the One Direction deportees.

Well, now you're just being silly.

I have a standardised set of tools for such situations.

A big ******* hammer and a ******* sharp chisel.

That doesn't sound like fixing... :matte-motes-silly:

I didn't realize Morgan Freeman talked about that sort of thing so your comment was a surprise. It reminded me of being surprised to hear Morgan Freeman's voice on the phone.

Clint Eastwood owns a business that is a customer of the company I work for. The first time I had to call them to respond to a support request, I was put on hold and got a canned message talking about all the things the property offered and how nice it was etc, etc. I kept thinking, "I KNOW that voice." When the person I was calling finally picked up the line I asked her if that really was Morgan Freeman doing the 'on hold' message.  She laughed. Turns out Clint recorded the same kind of thing for a business Morgan Freeman owns in the South somewhere.

Multimillionaires having fun.:smileyhappy:

At least he could sing without the aural equivalent of photoshopping.

True.

I know I'd rather listen to Mogan Freeman talk me through masturbation than hearing Taylor Swift sing.

So I'm guessing Boy George wouldn't be out of the question either? :smileylol:

For either/all genders.

Depending upon how good your eyesight - and memory - was.
